Question

To anyone who has seen this movie or knows anything about it. The Mustang in Bullitt I think has a 289 that is heavily modified, does anyone know what mods it had because there is know way a stock 289 could keep up with what looked like a 426 hemi Charger. These 2 cars both sound awesome.

I recommend anyone who has not seen the movie to watch it just for the car chase, listen to those awesome V8's. Its pretty good for a 33 year old movie. :D

In the movie Bullitt they used 2 '68 mustangs. both of them were 390's, not 289's. one of the stangs was a gt.
Both of the cars had there badges removed to make them look identical.
Somethin else that might be of interest....
The baddies car ('68 440 magnum Charger) was very nearly gunna be a Fairlane (Warner Bros had
a deal with FoMoCo) but the stuntdrivers didn't think that the Fairlane was up to the task

If u look wheely closely at the main chase in Bullitt, the charger loses I think it's 8 hubcaps.
Also right at the end of the chase u can see where the charger gets pushed thru the petrol bowser, I mean towed thru it (there is a towbar joinin the front of the two cars together - clearly in view in the DVD version)

The main star is a Shelby GT500 (I think) Mustang. Beautiful looking thing, great note, even has nitrous. The movie has PLENTY of other great cars too, since the whole thing is about a group of professional car thieves. Plenty of Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo, and classics action. All either sports or muscle cars (with the exception of a few Merc limos etc). AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE FOR ANY PETROLHEAD!!
